Song: Riverman, Nick Drake

Betty came by on our way
said she had a word to say
'bout things today
and falling leaves

Said she hadn't heard the news
hadn't had the time to chose
a way to lose
but she believes

Gonna see the riverman
gonna tell him all I can
'bout the plan
for life and time (?)

If he tells me all he knows
'bout the way his river flows
and all night shows
and summertime

Betty said she prayed toady
for the sky to blow away
and maybe stay
she wasn't sure

But when she thought of summer rain
calling for her mind again
she lost the pain
and stayed for now

Gonna see the riverman
gonna tell him all I can
about the ban
on feeling free

If he tells me all he knows
'bout the way his river flows
I don't suppose
it's meant for me

Oooooooooo how they come and go
Oooooooooo how they come and go
